Interesting to see 12cm diamond windows, speaker cones, and computer heat sinks being made.

But I gotta object to this: "And that's where an exciting new way of making diamonds comes into play - "chemical vapour deposition"."

I worked on CVD diamond as an intern in the mid-1990s. Useful coatings and diamond films were being made then. There's been improvements (look at that window in article!), but the process ain't new.
